When the star in the sky is gone,

When the kings and the princes are home,

When the shepherds are back with their flocks,

The work of Christmas begins.

To find the lost,

To heal the broken

To feed the hungry,

To release the prisoner,

To teach the nations,

To bring Christ to all,

To make music in the heart.

                                  Howard Thurman (1899-1981)
